Men At Large discovered by the late great Gerald Levert are the last of a dying breed! In 1992 Men At Large shocked the world with its self titled debut on the Atlantic Records label. Their first single "Use Me" became an instant radio hit inspiring B.E.T, to use it for a station jingle.They would go on to release 4 more singles from the cd. "You Me", "Umm Umm Good", "Would You Like to Dance", and the RnB Classic "So Alone" which made Billboard Hot 100 list and was radio's #1 song of the year in 1993. Traveling the world with its other 90's cohorts (Rude Boys, Shai, Silk, H-Town, Levert II, Next, etc) they would leave each city with the reputation of being the "Show Stoppers!"
It didn't stop there in 1994 they released "One Size Fits All" right in the middle of a label merger still garnering critical acclaim. Releasing 2 singles "Let's Talk About It" and "Holiday" top 10 and 20 respectively they continued to shock the world town by town. Being bred by Eddie and Gerald Levert gave these 2 an obvious advantage. As time moved on the duo would sever ties with the Levert camp only to find the next chapters not as plentiful as the beginning. Still riding off the success of its first 2 records the boys would continue to ride the rails of success as the people just couldn't get enough of the boys. In 1999 and 2007 they released "Love Struggle and Progress" with Rival Records and "Back on Top" doing numbers that were plentiful on an independent level winning best group awards and independent video of the year nominations, only to lose to the great Kenny Rogers. To date the group still tours extensively around the country with their 90s music peers leaving the crowd amazed and wanting more. Their powerful vocals and zany stage antics keep the fans applauding. Bred from the Levert pedigree what else would youy expect!
